EL SEGUNDO, Calif. (AP) -- Los Angeles Lakers guard Jordan Farmar will be out for at least four weeks with another tear in his left hamstring.

The injury-depleted Lakers announced their latest setback Wednesday.

Farmar missed 3 1/2 weeks after tearing his left hamstring Dec. 1. He got hurt again during the Lakers' home loss to NBA-worst Milwaukee on Tuesday night.

An ultrasound test revealed Farmar tore his hamstring again, but in a different location.

The Lakers are without Kobe Bryant, Xavier Henry and three point guards: Steve Nash, Steve Blake and Farmar. Bryant and Henry filled in as the Lakers' point guard while Nash, Blake and Farmar were out in recent weeks.

Kendall Marshall, signed from the D-League on Dec. 20, is the only healthy point guard on the roster.
